A Temporary Work visa is a popular choice for applicants who wish to come to work and live in Canada as soon as possible. Within the first half of 2013, over 500,000 worker visa applications has been approved. This visa will allow applicants to work and live in Canada, and gain Canadian work experience. The Federal government’s expansive Temporary Foreign Worker Program allows eligible foreign workers to work in Canada for an authorized period of time if their employers can demonstrate that they are unable to find suitable Canadians/permanent residents to fill the jobs and that the entry of these workers will not have a negative impact on the Canadian labour market.
Foreign workers for all types of businesses and with a wide range of skills can be recruited to meet temporary labour shortages. Once granted, work visa holder will be allowed to come and work in Canada for the designated employer in the specified role. Accompanying partners and children may also be eligible to work and study.
